You can set folder list in urbackup client side and so you can set different folder in different clients or you can set some fix folders in server configuration if you would to save same folder in different clients
The image generally is used to save all but you can exclude some folder as suggested here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa819132(v=vs.85).aspx

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I am not able to achieve file only backup. Can you

current settings.

if you want to save, for example, users folder in all pc clients,
you can set c:\users in “default directory to backup” (your d:\urbackup is probably destination folder server side: set destination in settings- server- storage path ).
If you want to save different folder in different clients, you can use pc client software

(the siplest way in my opinion) or specific config server side (maybe better way)
I suggest you to read UrBackup manual to make first steps https://www.urbackup.org/administration_manual.html

Hi,

When I checked the logs, I am getting below logs.

2018-01-05 13:09:12: ERROR: Cannot get volume for path “”. The filename,
directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. (code: 123)
2018-01-05 13:09:12: ERROR: Creating snapshot of “urbackup” failed.
2018-01-05 13:09:12: ERROR: Error getting filelist of ARS-DELL-LT-044.
Errorcode: CANNOT_OPEN_FILE (3)
2018-01-05 13:09:15: ERROR: Backup had an early error. Deleting partial
backup.
2018-01-05 13:09:16: WARNING: Exponential backoff: Waiting at least 40m
before next file backup

What’s this? I have provided full permissions on folder (on server and on
clients)

mh…
maybe, there is something wrong in your configuration:
destination folder server side is writable?
original folder pc side (windows?linux?mac?) in readable?

Yes,

Its full access. Server environment is centos and its 777 permission.
